I 'm Danielle!
the artist behind illuminated ART™
For 20 years before my move to Oahu, I was a Local 706 Makeup Artist in Hollywood. To say it is and was the coolest job ever is an understatement!
My career took me to so many places, introduced me to so many people, and allowed me to create amazing on people’s faces. I never thought I would want to stop working on television and movie sets, behind the scenes with truly incredible actors and other makeup artists.
Some of my favorite Hollywood moments
but all that changed...
...one sweet day in February of 2014, when my husband and I were blessed with our first beautiful daughter. I was and am forever changed by becoming a mother.
But suddenly the fun of staying on set all hours of the night and being in the spotlight were no longer important, long hours away from home slowly becoming a nuisance that kept me away from the new tiny human that had just entered my world.
However, for the next five years we made it work. I shifted to live broadcasts to be on set for shorter hours, and our second daughter made her way into the world. But when my husband got the call to work in Hawaii in 2019, I knew the opportunity to change our location and lifestyles went beyond just the call for his job.
